And if you try to find a wrangler from 91-95 for cheap cheap, good luck, everyone who owns a wrangler from those years think they are worth at least 5 grand no matter how rusty and beat down they are. Supra how much did you pay for your donor wrangler?
Well I finally came across a 1992 4.0 manual jeep cherokee!
I'll start my swap in a few weeks, i bought the whole car for 800!!
it runs great but has body damage! haha!!
I wanna know how much of it I can use on my CJ7~
Transfer case, differentials, engine, tranny, light wiring, etc.
Thank you guys for all ur info! it's helped me a lot!
Greetins from Cabo San Lucas!

With out heavy fab work you can use the engine, tranny, engine wiring, and power steering gear box. Based on how much fabrication you want to do you can use all the XJ wiring and steering column and instrument cluster (that's what I did.) The t-case is little use to you unless you are going to swap the axles. And that would require a ton of fab work. Just step back and take a look at the XJ axles and see if you could clean and weld perches to resemble the CJ's. They are wider and the front diff pumpkin might be in a position where you can not get a perch on it. you would probably have to spring out the front and I would save that for stronger axle up grade. You might need and adapter for the tranny to t-case. Check www.novak.com in their knowledge base to figure that out.

And by the way CABO! You suck. Mas Tequila Por Favor!

You only use the 4.0 starter if you are useing the 4.0 fly wheel. If you are keeping your original fly wheel, clutch, and tranny then you need to use the 4.2 starter.

They are all the same. Unless for some reason you have cruise. ON another note, I'm going to check with Eddie about the sticky status.

Running well. I am the originator of the thread. MY info wouldn't put very much confidence in you guys if mine didn't run either would it?

As far as I know you really cant. The connectors are the same, but I wouldn't trust adding in. Contact the seller and tell them you want a full refund.

You can get a CJ manual, but their are so few wires you need from CJ, that I didn't get one. As far as your air filter, I went simple. I honestly just took a K&N cone filter that was the correct inside diameter and slipped it directly over my throttle body. It works, and keeps the clutter down very well.
